Well, yes. Google told me that.

You do realize my country has barely heard of her, let alone premoting her vocal efforts. :P

Just so you know, Jenny's authorized me to tell you that if you hurt her, I'm going to beat you with a shovel, use a car battery attached to your testicles to torture you for an indeterminite amount of time, then beat you the rest of the way to death with the aforementioned shovel as a mercy act.

Then bury you with the shovel, because it's a good multipurpose tool.

A vague disclaimer is nobody's friend!

Oddly, "authorize" is not the word I would use....especially considering I'm the one that did the last round of hurting. :(

Lennon

In my defense of those, I say this:

Baha Men - There was no way not to have heard them, it was impossible, it was inconceivable!

Backstreet Boys - Again, was all over MTV and radio, no avoiding it...

Billie... as an American, I should have been able to avoid knowing of her. Or at least go "Oh, I bought the cd because of Doctor Who!" ... Sadly, I bought the cd years ago... because people kept posting pictures of her popping out of her top and comparing her to Britney Spears and I was "Whoa, nice... Wonder if she can sing... I'll just buy this cd..."

cough Um, don't ask me how many cd's I've bought just because the (lead) singer was hot.
